Notice of change of operator
Thank you for your patronage with PaintsChainer.
This announcement is to inform you that PaintsChainer's operating company has been changed from Preferred Networks, Inc. to pixiv Inc. as of November 15, 2019.
This will partially change the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, but the contents of the service were not subject to any changes and there is no need for further procedures on the user's side. You can enjoy PaintsChainer as usual.
We look forward to your continued patronage as we strive to provide an even better service in the future.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people affected by the earthquake that struck Hokkaido in northern Japan earlier this month.
Today, we are pleased to announce the resumption of Canna and Line Simplify services, which we had suspended as part of our energy-saving efforts for the region, after a generator at the Tomato-Atsuma power plant in the prefecture was restarted this afternoon.
We are very grateful for your understanding and cooperation. Thank you.

Our hearts go out to the people affected by the powerful earthquake that occurred in Japan's northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido early this morning.
This earthquake has caused blackout in the entire region, leaving millions of households without electricity. Due to the island-wide blackouts, PaintsChainer will have to suspend some of its functions, namely Canna and Line Simplify, starting from 16:00, Sept. 6, JST.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We will appreciate your understanding on this matter.

We have updated the PaintsChainer web site and added a new painting style "Canna". This model is particularly good at shading and lighting.

The "Sketch Simplification" tool was released. This tool allows you to extract and refine the strokes of your sketches.
